Joan of Arc shares its new single “Karma Repair Kit” from the band’s final album, Tim Melina Theo Bobby (Joyful Noise Recordings), which is set to drop on December 4th. The track is written by Tim Kinsella and the cheery number blends gentle acoustics with a drum machine beat and glitchy arrangements, showcasing the group’s signature style.
The visual accompaniment was created by Bobby Burg and features a masked graffiti tagger tracing its lyrics across Chicago. “‘Karma Repair Kit’ is named in tribute to a very simple Richard Brautigan poem I’ve had unintentionally memorized since I was a teenager,” Kinsella explains. “This song was tricky to balance thanks to the different elements that each carry contradictory signifying baggage–one degree too far this way or that way, and we’re suddenly bobbling our version of Wilco or Lenny Kravitz.”
